In the eighth and final book of the Keystone Stables series, perfect for girls who love horses and horse fiction, foster child Skye must confront her past and decide her future when she has the opportunity to find her birth parents and possibly reunite.

On a trip to South Carolina with her foster family, Skye gets the shock of her life when the waitress at a local diner seems to recognize her. The woman proves to be Skye’s long-lost Aunt Millie—the first blood relative Skye has ever met. As Skye and Mom and Dad Chambers attempt to track down Skye’s birth parents with Millie’s help, Skye’s foster sister and best friend, Morgan, struggles with her own family regrets. As the secrets of both Skye’s and Morgan’s lives are revealed, it becomes clear more is at stake than anyone can imagine—and both girls have a big decision to make.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Marsha Hubler

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I loved owning horses over a twenty-year period. But, as I grew older, my back could no longer tolerate the pressure of riding. I haven't had horses for a long time, and I miss them very much. My favorite horse was Rex, a bay part Quarter Horse and part Tenn. Walker. He loved to sniff my pockets for sugar cubes.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Besides wanting to share the love of Christ in some exciting stories about kids and horses, one of the prime motivations was meeting an editor from Zonderkidz at a writers' conference. Since she offered me the contract to write the books, I guess you could say she was a BIG motivating factor.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I pray that readers will either accept Christ as their Savior or determine to live for Him every day better than they've ever done before.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  After the books came out, I was greatly impacted by emails and letters from my fans who love the books. The greatest thrill is when one of them says they've accepted Christ or have decided to live for God because they read the books.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My greatest influence is God's Word that teaches us about God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, who is my Savior and Lord. I am greatly inspired by other Christian writers, editors, and church friends.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Jeremiah 33:3 "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee gret and mighty things, which thou knowest not." Matthew 10:32 "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is heaven."
